I just checked my mother’s blood pressure. On the right arm, the body is 125/70 while on the left arm is 160/82. Usually the tension is on the left arm and indeed it hovers around that number. My mother has hypertension and diabetes and is trying to reduce tension. Is it normal? And also done in a lying position. According to the doctor, measuring tension is done by lying down or sitting? thank you

Hi,

Blood pressure is an indicator used to diagnose conditions of high blood pressure (hypertension). Measurement of blood pressure can be done in various ways, but the way the measurement is generally done is the measurement of the arm. Because blood pressure measurements are greatly influenced by examining factors and tools, measurements should be made by trained medical personnel to avoid incorrect calculations. The following are some things that must be considered to measure blood pressure:

Use a cuff that fits your arm size Avoid activities at least 30 minutes before measurement, measure in a calm and comfortable condition Measurements can be done in a sitting or lying position with the back. Position the elbow of the arm to be measured as high as the position of the heart. Differences in the size of the tension of the right and left arms are natural. But if the pressure difference that occurs is significant (more than 10) it needs attention because it can be caused by blood flow disorders.

Apart from the blood pressure differences between the arms experienced by your mother, blood pressure 160/80 is still categorized as high blood pressure and needs medical intervention to avoid the risk of cardiovascular disease (heart-blood vessels). Related to this, your mother should check her cardiologist and also a specialist in internal medicine related to diabetes.
